Amazon Prime Video is finally coming to Apple TV, reports BuzzFeed. Citing sources familiar with the plans, the outlet says that Apple will make the announcement next month at their World Wide Developers Conference.

The move signals that the two companies have reached an agreement to end their years-long feud, which not only kept Amazon’s video app off of Apple’s set-top box, but also removed the Apple TV from Amazon’s storefronts.

BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowksi, who has an excellent track record reporting on Apple’s future plans, says that the app is expected to go live this summer. Also, as part of the deal, Amazon will resume Apple TV sales at some point.

If true, this will be a significant win for Amazon Prime customers using Apple TV. Currently, there is no way to natively access Amazon Prime Video on tvOS. WWDC will take place in San Jose, California and begin on June 5.

    I just saw on the apple website that iDownloadblog announces that we are announcing Amazon Prime for Apple TV at WWDC.

  • brad

    thank god! I was literally about to buy a Fire stick yesterday.

    • Rowan09

      Why because of Amazon Prime video? I’m a prime customer and love he fire tv/tv stick devices but Prime Video sucks when compared to the competition.

      • brad

        Yeah. For prime video. I agree. It is inferior, but there are a few shows on there I’ve been wanting to watch. And the smart tv is in the bedroom, and my fiancé is sleeping.. you know, first world problems.

      • Rowan09

        Oh ok.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        You guys are rookies. No one buys the FireTv for Prime video. We buy it to install Kodi, which sucks on the Apple TV. Why do you think the Firestick and FireTV are always sold out? One word, Kodi. If you don’t know what that is, google it.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. Dude I hack fire tvs/fire tv sticks since they were released. Before they even released the fire stick/tv I was hacking other android sticks. Please explain why Kodi sucks on the Apple TV 4 now when it’s the same product? If all you have on your fire stick/tv is Kodi then you might be the rookie because that’s very basic for me my friend.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Simple. ATV4 cannot install Kodi builds. Therefore Kodi is watered down… same product my ass… Builds install perfectly on FireTV 🙂 It’s obvious you haven’t tapped into the full power of Kodi 😉 Titanium Build, no need for anything else on your FireTV. Full media center

      • Rowan09

        It can install builds I have Megamind build on mine right now. Do you own an Apple TV 4?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        😉 how often does your Kodi White screen 😉 lololololol step your game up BRO. FireTV install ONE TIME and you’re good to go.

      • Rowan09

        White screen? Never actually. I own thr fire tv gen 2, ATV 4 and Nvidia Shield, so you actually need to step your game up. If I wasn’t with my son I would install Titanium build on my ATV 4 for you just to show you there is levels to this thing. Titianum build is made on the Xonfluence Skin so after installing it you’ll need to add the Xonfluence Skin to get the look.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        NO. it will NOT work. I bet my soul on it 😉 clown. I have a $2k gaming PC and a $1500 monitor… you STEP YOUR GAME UP BROOOOO

        ultrawide 38in 4k ;D

      • Rowan09

        Lol. I just bought a 3k gaming pc and $2000 monitor so step your game up Bro. After I own your soul, I need my toilet cleaned. Seriously though I’ll try it later just for you and let you know if it works.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        You didn’t buy sh** you clown. Riddle me THIS.. what’s the most expensive component in your so called $3k build? 😉 hahaha lying mf

        you have no fkn idea how to play BF1, COD, or Injustice 2.

      • Rowan09

        Of course I’m lying about the pc and monitor.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        I know. 🙂 you can’t afford such things 😉 you need a REAL job to do that.

        Bro, do you even have a super charged F-RS?

      • Rowan09

        What’s my salary?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        30k LMFAOOOOOO broke as a JOKE

      • Rowan09

        I make more than $40/hour so that’s not true.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        More like $16 an hour rookie! hahaha and you have a KID lol

      • Rowan09

        Sorry but far from and if I did I would be able to afford a 2K computer and monitor because I have side businesses. I live in NY and work in construction as a union journeyman so go google it.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Ny on a $40/hr … that’s equivalent to $16/hr in California. LMFAO… it’s called Cost of Living you clown.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. You think the average salary is over $40/hr in NY? lol that’s over a $100K a year. Minimum wage is going to $15 in 2 years and now $11. Where do you live California?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        I’m talking about YOUR salary 😉 not ny AVG you idiot. I live in So Cal 🙂 CHEAP cost of living

      • Rowan09

        Yes and I make over $100k/year. Yes cost of living is cheap along with pay, I’ve been to Cali many times. You’re the one trying to make things personal by assuming. The Median salary is about 40-60k.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        You’re a rookie with a KID 🙂 rookie mistake.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. You sir won this round because I have 2 kids.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Yikes. $600k down the drain.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. They’ll be rich I’m making sure of that. My daughter is in the top 1 percent in the state and love programming since 4th grade and my son is only 2.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Don’t get your hopes up champ. Getting rich is combined with a lot of luck.

      • Rowan09

        Of course. I may not get rich, but my kids will be. Between the stock market and businesses, they’ll be fine.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Market is overvalued. PE ratio of the S&P is that levels just before the recession. Global economies are falling apart, our GDP is at a laughing percent, Minimum wage is increasing, thus our cost of living will also increase. Let’s hope your children get degrees in Finance like me, you will need to actively manage your account if you want to survive the coming years 😉

      • Rowan09

        I’m very stable and these recessions are created by the rich to get richer. I’ve been in the market for some time now and I see what’s going on. Thanks. Plus you make money on the market both ways.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        😉 hedge.

  • Mark S

    I love my rooted fire tv that uses an external hard drive via usb to play my tv and movie collection. Can’t do that with atv unless you stream it.

    • Rowan09

      Well. You can simply download them since there is enough space with a 32Gb and 64GB. I have both and I love the fire tv and I also love my Apple TV 4 as well.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        ONE 4k movie = 30gb+ LOL newb. Enough storage for what exactly? hahahaha FireTV is KING and HALF the price of Apple POOP.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. You know there is such a thing as a wifi enable hard drive right? I have one that’s 2 TB so if I want to download movies I can simply use it and stream from it through Kodi. Want to sell something else for me to prove it to you?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Please tell me the speeds of your “WIFI enabled HDD aka a Network Drive” LMFAO. 😉 play a 4k movie over the network. 🙂 oh wait. Apple can’t play 4k LMFAO!!!

      • Rowan09

        100/100 and you are downloading 4K tv shows and movies where now? Do you have a 4K tv and why would I care about 4K when I didn’t buy a 4K tv? If you’re only argument is using 4K then stay with the Fire Tv. As I said before I own both so I have no issue with the Fire TV besides the usable space.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        4k 38in Ultrawide monitor 🙂 … 100/100 is too slow lol… Fire TV has expandable space… what again is the issue? slap in a 256gb micro SD for $10 from Amazon and call it a day. Can’t do that with an Apple TV. 🙂 You should probably buy a 4k tv… what are you? stuck in the 90s? lol it’s 2017 BRO

      • Rowan09

        256GB micro sd for $10? You must buy those non-namebrand version which takes forever to load. I didn’t buy a streaming tv box to download movies and tv shows by the way and if I did need to download some movies I always download and then delete them. As I stated before I don’t need to buy a SD card because I can either add the videos to iTunes and stream from it, or use my NAS hard drive. 4K TVs are cheap now, a 60″ can cost about $500-$700, so I can afford one just useless to own one with no content. Go ahead baller

      • Jibbley Gravey

        You’re on 1080p, you are a chump. It’s 2017, please upgrade.

      • Rowan09

        1080 is still the standard 4K is trying to make its way and you know 8K is already on the way right?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        8k BEEN on the way TWO years ago. Hence the 8k monitors. You’re far behind the curb.

      • Rowan09

        Exactly so you’re bragging about 4K which still not the standard and they already moving on to 8K.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Bro, 4k is the standard for all content in 2017. Any new TV show, movie, etc. All have a 4k version. Just check out Amazon Prime, Netflix, HBO Go etc…

        4K BRO! Even YouTube is 4k what the F**** are you doing?

  • Up Stream

    Finally, I spent £170 on an Apple TV exclusively to watch amazon prime ONLY
    I was told by Apple it would have an app, if not airplay. Neither worked

    • Rowan09

      You can airplay it to the ATV the airplay button is right up top next to the subtitle box. You can also mirror your device as well and that’s done in control center now.

  • Jibbley Gravey

    AppleTV can’t install Kodi without Jailbreak or Dev license, so it will always be crap in my eyes. Even if you do manage to get it install, you can’t install most Kodi builds, so it’s basically a watered down version of Kodi. NO THANKS.

    • Rowan09

      Where do you get watered down version? Have you even installed this on an Apple TV 4? Yes you need a dev license so what? I have a dev license I installed Kodi, etc on other people’s devices and already made my money back I paid for the dev license.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        BUILDS do NOT install on Kodi with Apple TV 4… do you even know how to setup Kodi? Do you know what a Kodi Build is? Kodi is CRAP on ATV4… IT WORKS GOD LIKE on FireTV … just saying..

      • Rowan09

        Lol. I know exactly what you’re doing wrong. They work fine. I own both so I understand. With the Apple TV when you download a build it doesn’t automatically change the look for some reason, but it adds all the addons. All you need to do is go to skin and change it to Aeon Nox and all is solved. Trust me I sold hundreds of these things. Kodi actually runs smoother on the Apple TV 4 as well.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        You’re an idiot. It won’t install anything, including the add-ons… Error. I own both as well and I have a paid dev license, and no you cannot just go to change the skin… Have you even done this recently? They don’t work 🙂 Go ahead and try to install Titanium 😉 let me know how that goes. I’ll install it in 5 min on FireTV 😛

      • Rowan09

        Lol. I just told you I have Megamind build on mine I never tried Titanium build. I’m an idiot because I got something working you can’t? Please explain? I’ll buy your useless ATV 4 from you what’s your price?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        You’re an idiot for using a crap build in the first place. Use a REAL build… The BEAST, PUSLE, TITANIUM you fkn clown. all do NOT work on ATV4…

        apple TV is SH** and you all know it. 🙂

        expandable storage, usb, fck off. FireTV OWNS. No need to wait for a “jailbreak” hahahahah no white screen every week.. hahaha idiots buy Apple TV… so limited…

      • Rowan09

        Lol. Megamind does more than I need, but as I stated if all you have is Kodi, you need to understand there is levels to this. I barely use Kodi because it’s my last resort. I won’t even tell you the other 5 apps I use. Step your game up bro. If you ask me nice I would definitely share, but that’s not going to happen.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Kodi does it all 😉 it you have a real build such as TITANIUM FKN MORON

      • Rowan09

        If you believe so. With your 5Gb of usable space Kodi is not the end all be all. Educate me on the best addons in Kodi?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        256 card? or how about 4TB external drive via USB… hahahahhhahhah what a ballSACK lol. did you really think you could compete with a FireTV? 64GB non expandable? lol.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. You need 256GB for Kodi? Lol. The ATV 4 can play any movie I send to iTunes without actually downloading it. There’s levels to this man.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        No, your little brain didn’t know you can download content to a HDD did you 😉 straight from Kodi LOLOLOLOOLOLOLO rookie MISTAKE.

      • Rowan09

        Lol. I made my own build and you think I can’t download content on Kodi? How long have you been using Kodi since Amazon made the Fire tv? I’ve been doing it since Windows and the Raspberry PI

      • Jibbley Gravey

        I did it on the Raspberry Pi 😉 you thought you were the only one who knew Computer Science. Think again, that skill set is contained by every millennial now. I can program in 7 different languages as well. I am a Quant 😉

      • Rowan09

        Great, but still can’t get Titanium on the ATV 4. I’m now going to make it my personal thing just for you.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Do it you clown. Enjoy that error upon install. 😛

      • Rowan09

        Ok I’ll see. I guess I’ll be in Cali soon for you to pay up.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        😉

      • Rowan09

        Hey. I just booked my flight to Cali because I just simply added the repo and install Titanium build on one of my Apple TV 4. I do remember you said you’ll give me your soul? I don’t really want to own your soul, so you can just be my indentured servant instead. What’s your address so we can work out the details?

      • Rowan09
      • Jibbley Gravey

        😉 Fire TV is a billion times better. Apple TV is POOP. Probably just switched to FireTV to actually load the build.

      • Rowan09
      • Jibbley Gravey

        No… Kodi runs WAYYYYY better on the Fire TV. 🙂 Better specs than the Apple TV and half the price. What’s up with that?

      • Rowan09

        Half the price? Amazon dropped the fire tv price from $99 to $89.99. No matter if you get the fire tv/fire tv stick you get the same 5GB of usable space. The Apple TV 4 sells for $149 so that’s $50 more and now $60 after the price drop (since the fire stick was the bigger seller). You get 5 times the amount of space than on the fire devices and yet you expect the same price? Dude you are just a hater. I own the fire stick/tv and I’m a huge fan (besides I’ve sold hundreds hooked up), but the ATV 4 runs Kodi smoother and the wifi range is better on the ATV 4 over the fire devices.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Dude. I have a 4TB hard drive connected to my Fire TV. Something you CAN’T do with Apple. Not to mention it also comes with a micro sd slot which also doesn’t come with Apple. Also 🙂 Fire TV is 4k. Apple is NOT. Again why am I paying TWICE as much for a device with HALF the specs of the Fire TV. Please help me understand.

      • Rowan09

        Once again this made up argument about better specs is a lie. As I stated before you have use a NAS hard drive and play any videos on that hard drive. 4k is not even a standard so I personally don’t care since almost no content exist and I don’t own a 4k tv.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        That was 5 years ago. 4k is pretty much the standard now… you just can’t afford the content? probably the kids you had with no money to afford them…. Most channels are 4k now if you have the package. Most movies are filmed with the Red Dragon 8k camera and release films in 4k but for noobs like you, they have a 1080p for you hahahhahah 4k is the standard now. You just need to step your game up BRO

      • Rowan09

        Lol. Please tell me about this 4K channels for live tv? I and most people here in NY City has Verizon FIOS and it’s the fastest and best service right now, especially when dealing with the internet. Verizon doesn’t offer any STB but yet you call it a standard? 4K still isn’t that popular and it’s useless to buy a tv for 4K when one I have TVs that’s working fine that’s 1080P and everyone I know with a 4K tv watching content looks no better than my 1080P. It’s useless to rush to 4k when it’s still not the standard, 1080P is still the standard. YouTube offers 4K on some things but it barely handles 1080 well to enough speak about 4K.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Should have switched to Direct TV, clown. 4k Everything.

      • Rowan09

        Why do you lie so much? DIRECTV only has 3 4K channels and when it rains, cloudy, etc signal sucks with them. Plus they also place a cap on internet usage so no thanks.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        No. Everything 4K! DIRECTV! Join now.

      • Rowan09

        I just went on their website and it says they only have 3 4K channels.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        🙂 I lied.

      • Jibbley Gravey

        PS. You can buy separate Internet. Time Warner Ultimate 300 $70. 😉

      • Rowan09

        But why? You do know you save when you bundle the first 2 years right? Plus Time Warner up and down speeds are not the same Verizon runs it here in NY. I would need to get another provider for 3 4K channels?

      • Jibbley Gravey

        Bro, you’ll save MORE by not having cable, installing Kodi, and having a BEAST internet connection. Plus if you’re a member of Hackforums 😉 purchase a HBO Go, Hulu Live TV, Sling, and MUCH MUCH more accounts for $3 😉 lifetime subscription.
